Addicted to a person

created by: Joseph26 4 months ago

Today is my first day that I’m starting to not check my phone or calling this person non stop. So technically I’m not sober from it yet, but I’m taking my first steps.

Excellent Joseph! Lots of us suffer from addiction to other people. Have you tried CODA or Alanon? Please keep checking back with us daily and let us know how you are doing. You can also add to your profile your sobriety date from the person and how much the person has cost you. Emotional and physical wear and tear from a horrible relationship costs more than money for me. I have a few toxic people that I don't hate anymore because hatred only hurts me. However I keep healthy boundaries. Alanon taught me alot about this....

Hey Joseph. I too have been where you are. I'm going through recovery from substances and a person/codependency. It's very real and can be done. I apply the 12 steps and 8 principles of recovery (Celebrate Recovery Program) to this person as well. You can do this!
